In a computer device, which of the following types of memory has the fastest access time?

In a computer device, which of the following types of memory has the fastest access time?

  • PCIe based SSD memory
  • RAM
  • CPU register
  • CPU cache 

 
In a computer device, which of the following types of memory has the fastest access time?

EXPLANATION

The faster the memory is the more expensive. Also the closer to the CPU is the lesser the latency would be. In this regard one can reasonably suggest which is the fastest memory only be looking by it size and location in the system.
The fastest memory block in a computer is the CPU register but it is also the smallest. It is followed by various levels of CPU cache. More info can be found here:

In computing security, which of the following describes a nonce?

In computing security, which of the following describes a nonce?

  • A hacking algorythm
  • No Other non-Critical Events
  • A value used once
  • A vector 

 
In computing security, which of the following describes a nonce?

EXPLANATION

Typically, a nonce is some value that varies with time, although a very large random number is sometimes used. A nonce can be a time stamp, a visit counter on a Web page, or a special marker intended to limit or prevent the unauthorized replay or reproduction of a file.

What type of RAID is RAID-Z?

What type of RAID is RAID-Z?

  • Hardware RAID
  • Software RAID
  • not a RAID
  • Virtual RAID 

 
What type of RAID is RAID-Z?

EXPLANATION

RAID-Z is a software raid achieved by

data/parity distribution scheme like RAID-5, but uses dynamic stripe width: every block is its own RAID stripe. It is primarily used by ZFS file system.

In computing, what is an octet? Checkmark A byte that is 8 bits A group of 8x8 bits A byte that is 80 bits A short string of coding

In computing, what is an octet?

  • A byte that is 8 bits
  • A group of 8x8 bits
  • A byte that is 80 bits
  • A short string of coding

 
In computing, what is an octet?      Checkmark A byte that is 8 bits A group of 8x8 bits A byte that is 80 bits A short string of coding

EXPLANATION

An octet is a byte, that is eight bits. This unit of digital information is often used in computing and telecommunications when the term byte might be ambiguous,
since historically there was no standard definition for the size of the byte. The usage of the old term octad(e) for 8 bits is no longer common today. (wiki)

What is one of the primary weaknesses of symmetric cryptography?

What is one of the primary weaknesses of symmetric cryptography?

  • Hard disk storage
  • RAM memory requirement
  • CPU processing speed
  • Key Management 

What is one of the primary weaknesses of symmetric cryptography?

EXPLANATION

Symmetric cryptography is usually fast and easy to implement. This is because encryption and decryption with a private key requires less complex computation than other types of cryptography. The significant disadvantage of symmetric encryption relate to the difficulties of managing the private key.

Which of the following characters designates a class in CSS?

  • #
  • !
  • .

 
 Which of the following characters designates a class in CSS?

EXPLANATION

The .class selector selects elements with a specific class attribute.  To select elements with a specific class, write a period (.) character, followed by the name of the class.

Definition and Usage

The .class selector selects elements with a specific class attribute.

To select elements with a specific class, write a period (.) character, followed by the name of the class.

You can also specify that only specific HTML elements should be affected by a class. To do this, start with the element name, then write the period (.) character, followed by the name of the class (look at Example 1 below).

HTML elements can also refer to more than one class (look at Example 2 below).
